Police in Matlock are appealing for witnesses to a burglary at a house on Gritstone Road in the town.

Between 12 noon and 9.30pm on Saturday May 9 someone broke into the house through a back window and searched the property.

Nothing was stolen but several items were moved by the burglar.

Evidence suggests that the intruder escaped over the fence at the bottom of the garden and across a field towards a Severn Trent underground reservoir off Wellington Street.

At about 8.30pm a neighbour saw a bearded, dark haired man who was about six feet tall, walk down the drive of the burgled house.

Police would like to speak to this man.

Anyone who has information about the crime or who saw anything suspicious should contact DC Steve Pullar on 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
